Hilary Duff Follows Up 'Chasing The Sun' With New Single, 'All About You'


Hilary Duff

Hilary Duff sure knows how to make a comeback. After a seven year drought without new music, she released her brand new single, ‘Chasing The Sun,’ just a few weeks ago - but that’s not at all. This week, she put out single number two, ‘All About You,’ and it’s the kind of track we’ve all been waiting for.

Hilary Duff Staples CenterHilary Duff released her second single, ‘All About You,’ this week.

Even though new music is out, the whole comeback in general is off to a pretty weird start. Back in the middle of June, it was reported that UK star Ed Sheeran was the brains behind Duff’s new single, having written the song with her in the studio in the matter of two hours. “Obviously she comes from Lizzie McGuire and that pop world but she’s more grown up now, so it’s more of an adult alternative acoustic sound,” Sheeran told Digital Spy. However, when details about ‘Chasing the Sun’ surfaced, Sheeran was nowhere in sight. The summer-y pop acoustic tune was instead written by a team that consisted of Colbie Caillat, Jason Reeves, and Toby Gad, and the general consensus was that it wasn’t too good. Vulture described it as sounding “like Paris Hilton doing Sheryl Crow karaoke.” Ouch. As far as commercial performance, ‘Chasing the Sun’ debuted at number 79 on the Billboard Hot 100. Not exactly the explosion that RCA Records were probably hoping for.

Ariana, Zooey, J-Lo, Miley! When Actresses Become Songstresses


Jenny Lewis Miley Cyrus Kylie Minogue Zooey Deschanel Ariana Grande Scarlett Johansson Juliette Lewis Taylor Momsen Jennifer Lopez Hilary Duff Selena Gomez Demi Lovato Lindsay Lohan She & Him Juliette And The Licks The Pretty Reckless

There seems to be a special musical buzz in the entertainment business at the moment reserved for screen actresses who are wanting to spread their wings in their career - and maybe earn some more money too. Whether it's Nickelodeon star Ariana Grande blowing everyone away with her stunning vocal range as she gears up to release her second album this summer, or indie favourite Jenny Lewis becoming ever more successful with her solo singing career after a good three years fronting a band, it appears that some actresses just can't resist testing their pipes in the recording studio. Even Hollywood sensation Scarlett Johansson dipped her toes in musical waters back in 2008 with her well-praised debut 'Anywhere I Lay My Head'.

While we're half expecting Keira Knightley to release a record any day now after singing on her latest drama 'Begin Again', we look at the film world's biggest female musical successes.

Jenny Lewis promoJenny Lewis: Singer-songwriter Jenny Lewis this week released Voyager, her critically acclaimed third studio album. Although best known for her time fronting indie favourites, Rilo Kiley, music wasn't actually Lewis's first career choice, instead the Vegas native was intially known as an actress. Her early showbiz experience mainly consisted of TV roles, with small parts in the likes of 'Baywatch', 'Brooklyn Bridge' and 'The New Twilight Zone' in the 80s and early 90s as well as film stints on 'Troop Beverly Hills' and 'The Wizard'. Her last major acting venture came with 1995's black and white drama 'Don's Plum' alongside Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire before she formed Rilo Kiley with then-boyfriend Blake Sennett.

What We Know About Hilary Duff's Comeback Single, 'Chasing The Sun'


Hilary Duff Ed Sheeran

Lizzie McGuire is back! Well, not really, but Hilary Duff as a musician is back. And that's even better. The 26 year old actress/singer has kept it low key on the music front for quite a long time. Her last album, Dignity, was released all the way back in 2007, and it feels like a million years ago that her music videos were huge on TRL. Luckily, some good news: her comeback single, ‘Chasing the Sun,’ is expected to arrive very soon.

Hilary Duff Staples CenterHilary Duff's new single, 'Chasing the Sun,' will debut soon

Duff's been working on her new tunes for years, saying that she hopes to get back into music before movies again. "I would love to do mainstream movies again. Before that, I will be spending a lot of time in the studio making a new record. I really miss being on tour, recording, and creating new music," she said in 2012. However, despite all the studio time and work with producer/songwriters Matt Squire and Boys Like Girls singer Martin Johnson, not even a clip has been revealed thus far.

Aaron Carter has shared with the world how much he wants to get back together with actress Hilary Duff, and has vowed to win her back. The 26 year-old singer has been pining for his former flame, just two months after Hilary split from her husband, Mike Comrie. Carter's public display began on Wednesday when he retweeted a photo of Duff that described her as "flawless."

Romeo and Juliet, Lancelot and Guinevere, Aaron Carter and Hilary Duff. Hang on, what was that last one? We never realised that Aaron and Hilary were star cross’d lovers, who despite their many years apart still yearned for one another. Well, Hilary not so much. But it turns out that Aaron has long been harbouring feelings for Hilary and now that she’s split from husband Mike Comrie he ain’t afraid for the whole world to know!

Aaron took to his Twitter account to announce “I’ll spend the rest of my life trying to better myself to get back to her. I don’t care what ANY of you think.” Heyyyy, calm down, Aaron. We’re on your side. Although to be fair, you did allegedly cheat on Hilary and date Lindsay Lohan at the same time as her. But you know, it’s cool that you’re trying to better yourself to be a worthier man should you win her back this time round. Hilary’s always seemed like a nice girl with her head screwed on, so she deserves somebody who will treat her right.

Dancing Star Melissa Gilbert Ties The Knot With Actor Timothy Bushfield


Melissa Gilbert Drew Barrymore Hilary Duff

There was dancing and there were stars – of the literal kind – as former Dancing with the Stars contestant Melissa Gilbert got hitched to Thirtysomething actor Timothy Bushfield on Wednesday, April 24. The couple opted for an intimate ceremony. The pair tied the knot "in a private ceremony at San Ysidro Ranch in Santa Barbara on April 24," Gilbert's rep confirms to People Magazine.

Gilbert (48) is probably best known for her role on “Little House On The Prairie”. Her beau has some impressive TV credentials as well, having appeared on Blue Bloods, Law & Order and The West Wing. Gilbert and 55-year-old Bushfield broke the news of their engagement back in December and, after just six months, the pair have opted to tied the knot. Both have been married twice before, but they say third time’s the charm, right? Gilbert is also a mother of two, while Bushfield has three children from previous marriages.

Gilbert opted out of the traditional white gown and instead went for a red number with a classic cut – a perfect complement to the warm spring night of the wedding. This isn’t the first high profile event, held at Ysidro Ranch. Over the years, the luxury hotel has played host to a number of celebs, from Drew Barrymore and Will Kopelman, who had their rehearsal dinner there, to Hillary Duff, who chose the place for her wedding night.

Hilary Duff, Ashton Kutcher To Play Lovers On 'Two And A Half Men'


Ashton Kutcher Hilary Duff

Hilary Duff, Ashton Kutcher? No, it's not what you're thinking, well, it sort of is. It looks like Duff, best known for playing Lizzie McGuire, will be returning to television this spring to play Kutcher's love-interest on Two and a Half Men. According to TVLine, Hilary, 25, will play first-time mom Stacey, a woman who catches Walden's eye on the season finale of the CBS show.

However, Duff isn't the only one who turns Kutcher's head on the show. According to E! Online, Walden will end up falling for her grandmother, played by the 60-year-old Celebrity Apprentice star Marilu Henner! Off-screen, Duff has had no problems getting back into shape after the birth of her 11-month-old son Luca, with NFL star Mike Comrie. "My one trainer helped me lose a sh-t ton of weight," she told Us Weekly in February. "I lost like 30 pounds. His name is Gabe Johns and he is amazing. He's a boxing trainer and he comes to my house. I live in the canyon, so we just run. He runs my ass up and down the hill."

Ashton Kutcher is currently the highest paid actor on U.S. television after taking over from Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men. Sheen, who suffered a largely public meltdown, was the previous No.1 with earnings of around $1.44 million per episode. Though Kutcher doesn't command that, he still pulls in enough to see off rival Mark Harmon.

What Goes Up Review


Bad
What a baffling film this is, as if coming to us from an alternate movie universe where Olivia Thirlby got pregnant instead of Ellen Page and never hooked up with Josh Peck in The Wackness, Steve Coogan found his calling as a serious actor, and Hilary Duff routinely appeared in the kind of indie-cred roles we always assumed Lindsay Lohan would start doing.

Let me explain, if I can. In What Goes Up, Coogan plays Campbell Babbitt, a New York reporter in 1986 unable to get over his most prized subject, a heroic woman from Harlem working through the death of her son. It doesn't help that said subject killed herself, and for some reason no one else knows; I guess this makes Babbitt feel like a fraud, but it should probably make him feel like everyone around him is an idiot.

War, Inc. Review


Weak
The road to Hell is paved with good intentions, and in the case of John Cusack's over-the-top satire of the Iraq War, War, Inc., the intentions are obvious and the road leads to a particular place in Hell presided over by filmmakers (Stanley Kramer resides on the throne there) who want to fight the good fight but use a two-by-four pounded into the back of a viewer's head to emphasize the obvious. As writer/producer/star of War, Inc. Cusack wants to make a statement about the venality of the United States' involvement in Iraq and wants to make that statement in the worst way. And, unfortunately, he does. Cusack attempts to reconceive the hit man premise of Grosse Point Blank as a lacerating and biting political satire in the vein of Dr. Strangelove or Wag the Dog. Unfortunately, the end result is more along the lines of those disastrous, live-action cartoonish romps of the stinky 1960s vintage a la John Goldfarb, Please Come Home.

As in Grosse Point Blank, Cusack plays a world-weary hit man, Brand Hauser, who works for a Halliburton-inspired international corporation that has just completed a contract on the first 100-percent outsourced road in the fictional Middle Eastern country of Turaqistan. The head honcho of the corporation is the ex-Vice President (Dan Akyroyd on a toilet) who orders Hauser into Turaqistan to assassinate the chief Turaqistani minister, Omar Sharif (Lyubomir Neikov). Omar plans to one-up the corporation by installing his own oil pipeline in competition, and the corporation will have none of that. Hauser arrives under cover as the head of the Brand USA Trade Show, where he is responsible for a big gala extravaganza starring Yonica Babyyeah (Hilary Duff in a change of pace role as a sexy, slutty Britney Spears clone; at one point she moans pointedly after dropping a scorpion down her pants). Also on hand in Turaqistan is Natalie Hegalhuzen (Marisa Tomei), a Nation-esque reporter who immediately rubs Hauser the wrong way. Could this be love?

Material Girls Review


Weak
I confess a fascination -- perhaps unhealthy by definition -- with the actress/singer/empire Hilary Duff. She's in no way a better actress than, say, Lindsay Lohan and her career doesn't have the occasional bursts of quality that dot Lohan's resume. But Duff has a puppy-ish goofiness and, more to the point, bold-outlined limitations on her acting abilities, that render her weirdly endearing. Most of her post-Disney movies have failed even as cheesy guilty pleasures, but I keep Netflixing those DVDs anyway, hoping for the best.

That kind of relativism -- hoping for the best possible Hilary Duff movie -- is what got me to see Material Girls in a theater (it wasn't screened for critics). It's a Duff movie through and through: Hilary's mom produced it, and her sister Haylie gets second billing. (Casting her less famous real-life sister as her movie sidekick is sweetly misguided, and therefore vintage Duff.) Hil-Hil and Hay-Hay play Tanzie and Ava Marchetta, spoiled heiresses whose cosmetics empire is threatened, landing them in the poorhouse. The opportunity for cheap culture-clash humor (see entitled rich girls adjust to poverty!) and cheap shots at Paris and Nicky Hilton (or even a fictional rehash of The Simple Life), combined with the participation of director Martha Coolidge (an expert in blonde bubbliness by virtue of having made Valley Girl years ago) makes Material Girls a candidate for a teenybopping good time. The peculiar, slapdash movie they made instead nonetheless eclipses most of the star's previous pre-teen pictures, because it finally drives a Duff vehicle into the land of beguilingly awful.

Cheaper By The Dozen 2 Review


Bad
You've seen this before. Steve Martin as the nervous parent awaiting a baby delivery. Steve Martin reluctantly acknowledging his daughter's independence. Steve Martin falling victim to kids' pranks. From Parenthood to the Father of the Bride remake and sequel to 2003's Cheaper by the Dozen to, uh, last week's Yours, Mine and Ours, the man who began his career as a brilliant, absurdist comic has defined himself as a soft, weepy dad, running through a thousand family-film clichés. Cheaper by the Dozen 2 rehashes it all with no presence of originality or humor.

Martin reprises the role of Tom Baker, father of twelve and husband to wife Kate (the sparkling, grounded Bonnie Hunt). In an effort to bond the family one final time before grandkids are born and chickens fly the coop, Tom cloyingly convinces the clan to vacation at their old lakefront haunt. There, they meet their nemeses: the clean-cut white-teethed Murtaugh family led by perfectionist papa Jimmy, played by the painfully underutilized Eugene Levy.

Raise Your Voice Review


Terrible
Bubblegum princess Hilary Duff's fleeting film career has reached the unpleasant stage where the wad of chew we're being offered has grown rubbery and flavorless. Our jaws ache just thinking about gnawing on a lump of sugar this size. What once was cotton-candy sweet now resembles the sticky paste that clings to the cardboard cone. Common sense tells you this junk is unappetizing. Why put your belly through such torture?

Raise Your Voice takes a feeble stab at building a feature film around a preconceived pop soundtrack of Duff tunes. It aims for Fame and ends up with famine. Following graduation from Riverdale High - seriously, were Archie and Jughead her classmates? - squeaky-clean Terri Fletcher (Duff) enrolls in the summer program at an elite performing arts academy. Competition is fierce, and so are the backstage stereotypes. Upon arrival, Terri falls for a British songwriter (Oliver James), befriends the hyperactive geek (Johnny K. Lewis), coaxes the talented recluse (Kat Dennings) out of her shell, and locks horns with the resident snob (Lauren C Mayhew). Who has time to sing when the student body is filled with such cardboard caricatures of standoffish overachievers?

The Lizzie McGuire Movie Review


Terrible
While I hate to devote (and am even more embarrassed to admit to using) any brain cells to the matter, after watching The Lizzie McGuire Movie, I'm convinced we have yet another Britney Spears waiting in the wings. With Spears' popularity waning, the timing couldn't be better for Hilary Duff, the young star of McGuire, to overtake the "pop princess" throne. The similarity in looks between the girls is uncanny, and just when we thought we were finally done with Britney, along comes another cutesy blond who also can't sing or act to take her place.

The movie is merely an extension of Duff's popular Disney television show where she plays the superficial title character Lizzie McGuire a recent middle-school grad, here on a two-week class trip to Rome. But, after a day of touring the sites with her bossy tour guide Miss Ungermeyer (Alex Borstein), her best friend Gordo (Adam Lamberg) convinces Lizzie they should dump the group and find their own adventure. Lizzie is eventually pulled aside by an Italian pop star named Paolo (Yani Gellman) who thinks she is a dead ringer for his former singing partner, Isabella. We learn Isabella is refusing to appear with Paolo at an upcoming music awards show and that he needs Lizzie to double as Isabella to avoid a publicity nightmare. The shallow, starstruck Lizzie naturally obliges.

A Cinderella Story Review


Good
A short time ago in a valley far, far away, a timeless tale was modernized. A royal ball was turned into the Halloween homecoming dance, the evil stepmother was turned into Stifler's Mom (Jennifer Coolidge), the stepsisters became valley girls, and the glass slipper switched into a cell phone.

In this latest telling, Cinderella is Sam (Hilary Duff), aka PrincetonGirl818, a girl who spends her days studying to get into Princeton (because that's where princesses go), her nights slaving for her evil stepmother at a Valley roller-diner with the class of a collagen injection. The majority of her school hours are spent text messaging her secret admirer, Austin (Chad Michael Murray), aka Nomad. (I really feel sorry for whoever actually has those AIM IDs.) The evil stepsisters are social jokes with the combined IQ of an imbecile, and the fairy godmother is a waitress sister with an attitude (Regina King).

Cheaper By The Dozen Review


Weak
Can someone please pull Steve Martin's career out of the past? Once wild and crazy, Martin's now mild and lazy, a cookie-cutter comedian content to milk mediocre laughs out of reheated remakes of classic flicks. Results vary. Martin's Father of the Bride stayed sweet, while his updated The Out-of-Towners struck a surprisingly unpleasant chord.

Now there's Cheaper by the Dozen, a stale take on Walter Lang's 1950s farce of the same name that is based on the real-life story of Frank and Lillian Gilbreth, the parents of 12 children. Here the original Gilbreth becomes Thomas Baker (Martin). Get it? A Baker's dozen? No, the jokes don't get much better than that one, unless you laugh when an athletic supporter lands in a pot of spaghetti sauce and Martin bellows, "Pasta de la crotch!"

Agent Cody Banks Review


Bad
I recently read an article that argued TV shows like CSI and James Bond movies are primarily responsible for young people's increased interest in criminal forensics and special military forces. Since Hollywood is both smart and shameless, it uses these notions to its advantage, devouring the success of Bond and vomiting up films like Spy Kids and Agent Cody Banks. Although the original Spy Kids worked, Agent Cody Banks proves that things seldom taste as good a second or third time.

Agent Cody Banks was made just to make money, and to stock Toys 'R' Us shelves and McDonald's Happy Meal boxes with cheap action figures. The script, which feels like the cheapest writers available threw it together in a week, is actually quite impressive in how every mind-numbing scene attempts to manipulate the minds of susceptible adolescents. It uses every trick in the book, from pre-teen humor and Bond rip-offs, to busty secret agents, phony special effects, and, of course, Frankie Muniz. If -- God forbid -- the movie is a hit, the producers have even secured an easy sequel with its carefully formulated ending.

Teenage singer Hilary Duff was amused to find herself - and her butt - the subject a string of lyrics in Eminem's single, 'Ass Like That'. In the single, Eminem raps about his appreciation for the derrières of a collection of female stars, including Jessica Simpson, Gwen Stefani, and the Olsen Twins: Mary-Kate and Ashley.

The Perfect Man Review


Bad
"The Perfect Man" is a cutesy-poo, happy-go-luckylittle movie about horrible, irresponsible, selfish people.

A blindly disconcerting fantasy aimed at girls in theirearly teens -- no one else could stomach it -- the movie stars Hilary Duffas Holly, a perky 16-year-old who isn't smart enough to realize that inventinga secret admirer to woo her lonely, romantically desperate mom is not justa gross invasion of privacy, but also downright cruel.

She sends flowers, and exchanges flirtatious emails andinstant messages, toying with her mother's heart. She models the mysteryman after a friend's handsome uncle (even using his picture, thus runningthe risk of Mom awkwardly bumping into the guy) and enlists another friendto call and pretend to be him.

As her scheme spins out of control, she causes $100,000-plusin damage to a friend's restaurant (which would certainly have to closefor repairs) and ruins a perfect stranger's wedding in an insultingly contrivedmisunderstanding. But Holly doesn't learn a single lesson from any of thisand never apologizes -- not even to her mom -- because these terrible blundersthat could destroy people's lives are all supposed to be just oh so adorableand funny.

In Disney Channel's big-screen spin-off "The Lizzie McGuire Movie," 'tweenybopper star Hilary Duff does little more than giggle (at cute boys) and gasp (at Roman tourist attractions) her way through a wholly contrived trip to Italy, where she just happens to meet a harmlessly sexy bubble-gum pop star, who just happens to have had a falling out with his singing partner/girlfriend, who just happens to look exactly like Lizzie.

Persuaded by Paulo (Yani Gellman) to pose as Isabella (also played by Duff in a black wig and an embarrassingly phony accent) during an upcoming awards show, Lizzie spends her whole class trip to Rome feigning illness (to fool the chaperone), sneaking off to rehearse with Paulo and clinging to him adorably as he shows her the picturesque sights from the back of a Vespa.

Populated by stock characters from the TV show (clueless parents, bratty little brother, catty in-crowd nemesis, sexless best guy-friend who secretly pines for Lizzie) and driven largely by invented circumstance (the film opens with Lizzie's junior high school "graduation"), there's precious little creative effort made here, save a few animated asides from Lizzie's cartoon-character conscience and the enjoyably acidic performance of stocky, plucky Alex Borstein ("Mad TV") as Miss Ungermeyer, the class chaperone and tour guide.

Weak

Is anybody else getting tired of doofus dad comedies? I don't know about you, but I'm pretty sure I've seen every emasculating joke there could be about stereotypically incompetent men being left alone with their kids and bungling everything while their wives are away. But here comes "Cheaper by the Dozen" anyway.

A loose remake of a 1950 laffer about a huge turn-of-the-century family headed by a stern efficiency expert, this version spends its opening voice-over explaining how Tom and Kate Baker (Steve Martin and Bonnie Hunt) ended up with 12 kids in this age of easy contraception before it launches into a multiple helping of the same old themes of clueless parents and kiddie chaos.

Escaped pet frogs and butt-biting dogs abound even before the plot kicks in, seeing the family move from their rural Illinois homestead to the hustle and bustle of Chicago when Dad, now a college football coach (in an abandonment of the original's most essential ingredient), is offered his dream job heading the team at his Division One alma mater.
